President Mearns

Mr. Geoffrey S. Mearns

Welcome to Northern Kentucky University. I hope you find our website useful. As NKU's president, it is very gratifying to be part of an institution that lights the way to a brighter tomorrow for our community, our Commonwealth, and our country.

NKU enrolls more than 14,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. As NKU continues to grow, our faculty and staff remain committed to providing a personal educational experience for our students. Our students receive a private university education for a fraction of the cost.

Our supportive and inclusive campus environment makes a lasting impact on our students, who come from across the Commonwealth and around the world to contribute their unique talents and perspectives inside the classroom and across our campus. And our faculty and staff are eager to help them.

And the majority of our more than 60,000 alumni live and work within our region, leading with excellence and leaving a lasting impact in our schools, hospitals, boardrooms, and beyond.

Whether you are choosing a college or are already a loyal member of Norse Nation, I thank you for visiting our website and engaging with Northern Kentucky University. This is a special place, and I hope to see you on campus soon.
 

Geoff Mearns
